I'm a winner - !!!!!

Over at Su's Blog - she was doing a PIF - and I had never done one so I thought it was time to - since I have absolutely nothing else to occupy my time!! HA-HA-HA!! I have seen these PIF's often and thought what a super idea - so I tossed my name in the kitty and I was a winner and now you can be one also - PIF's are very easy - sooooooo

Do you want to join my PIF?

The rules are as follows: * If you would like to receive stitchy gift made by me within 365 days please leave comment on this post to say that you are interested, the first 3 people I draw the names for on Monday, September 22nd (Presuming I get more than 3 people interested that is) will be my PIF members* In return you post the same offer on your own blog. And the chain goes on... :) So easy and so fun -

I am sending out the first of my Fall exchanges today - it has quite a way to go - so it will probably take a week to get there - I will post a snap as soon as I know it has arrived.

On the stitchy front last night I was a'working on the MAW Exchange for Gaby - she wanted a Flat-Fold with a LHN-CCN design - I really like them so I jumped at this MAW - I will probably have this in the mail on Tuesday along with a couple of other exchanges. I always seem to mail things out so early - just a spaz I guess - since I am hyper sensitive to my being late I think this trait carries through my whole life. I know exactly where this comes from - growing up my parents as wonderful as they were to us where habitually late to everything!! Now the pendulum has swung the other way and I am habitually early to everything!! Go figure!

Thanks you all for the suggestions as to how to wrangle up my stash into a workable system - right now I sort of have it organized by designer and when that fails theme. My flosses I have either in Floss-a-way bags or on large floss rings by company.

The flicks last night were Netflix selections - short stories to be precise - I am a great lover of the short story - the stories last night where "The Revolt of Mother" - 1986 starring Amy Madigan - the original story was written by the wonderful 19th century author - Mary Wilkins Freeman - it is about a barn, a wife and some cows in rural New England. She is a wonderful author and I would highly recommend her stories. This production was good and I enjoyed it but the story is so much richer. The second selection was "The Jilting of Granny Weatherall" -1980 - starring Geraldine Fitzgerald. The story is by Katherine Ann Porter - not the best version of a great story - pass on this adaptation and read the original!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

PS - ONLY - 8 more days until the SBBC-2009 sign ups close.

I would love to join your PIF, but I'm not gonna, because PIFs entail deadlines, and even a 365 deadline is enough to do my head in at the moment :o) I'm super glad you won with Su, though!

I am an avid reader of your blog. Your work is always fabulous! I don't have a blog. Yet. But am part of the MM&IRR. I would be honored to receive a PIF from you. And in turn I would send on to others. It sounds like a wonderful idea.

I'm an avid reader of yours, although I'm just lurking. I love your works, your choices are great and you have a really good taste.
I don't know if I'm still qualified for your PIF as I have already started mine.
Have a great day!

I love your work as I said before....but..I am too nervous to stitch for any of you experienced stitchers so I don't think I want to join your PIF! But I will read your blog everyday to see what gorgeous projects you do and all the movies you watch! and maybe a year or so from now I will feel daring! hahahaha!
Happy stitching!

Woops! Well, Edgar, I guess I missed the PIF joining...? I've wanted to get to know you for such a while. I'm friends with your stitching friends and just haven't had a moment (ill health, etc.) to get to meet you. Please check out my blog and let's email! I love reading yours and seeing your stitching with Carol, etc. Hugs, Deb
